Review for Operation Bandanas for Bragg, dba Operation Bandanas, Fayetteville, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was in Iraq in 2006 and again in 2008 with USMC. When he deployed in '08, a friend of mine sent us a Bandana with the 91st Psalm on it....John folded it and put it between his heart and his flak jacket and wore it every day on missions. When he came home it smelled sooooo bad! (He was there Feb-Sept) I washed it, ironed it and had it framed for him for Christmas! He cried when he opened it and now has it hanging in his new home! Now, whenever I know of a soldier being deployed, I try to get a Bandana in his/her hand. It is a wonderful "witnessing" tool, I have had so many letters from soldiers thanking me. I know there have been seeds sown and God is watering, nurturing!! This is an amazing Ministry!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Whenever I order Bandanas, whether it is one or enough for a Platoon, they arrive very quickly!!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Mary Gray is the person I correspond with, she is very professional and prompt. Also, I have friends who meet and fold these Bandanas, package them to be sent to soldiers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Put one of these Bandanas in every Military personnel!!
